The design of the new car was not too appealing. The smooth contours of the body visually model gave excessive weight and clumsiness. To match the exterior and the interior turned out as well as the direct predecessors in this family was not, the interior of the model was created from scratch.
The new steering wheel, its own design of the front panel to the central plate, combining kruglyashi ducts and climate control – all done in the same rounded shape with smooth contours that are used in the design of the exterior. Nevertheless, it is worth noting that for the class salon Lada Kalina turned out quite roomy and spacious. Driver’s seat – with good visibility, ergonomic chairs but still let us down.
